Revealed in October and brought to fruition with the help of a successful Kickstarter campaign, Neocore Games’ King Arthur: Knight’s Tale is only a few weeks away from being released into Early Access.
A role-playing tactical game, King Arthur: Knight’s Tale puts players in the role of Sir Mordred, the nemesis of the titular King Arthur. A battle between the two resulted in them both being mortally wounded, but the mystical Lady of the Lake revived you both. But even in his somewhat undead state, Mordred is still hell-bent on finishing what he started; sending King Arthur to his grave once and for all.
There’s plenty of RPG elements, and so players will have to make choices about how to proceed. The decisions you make might alter your path – for better or for worse. But one thing’s for certain: you’ll find yourself in the midst of plenty of battles. And with various heroes to fight by your side, Sir Mordred is never alone. They play out in typical turn-based fashion, with various attacks at your disposal.
If a twist on a popular English legend sounds like your sort of thing, you don’t have to wait much longer to try it. King Arthur: Knight’s Tale will be hitting Steam Early Access on 12th January.
Developer Neocore Games anticipates that the game will remain in early access for “a few months”. In that time, it will receive regular updates, and changes will be implemented based on player feedback. A full release on PC is scheduled for “early 2021”. It’ll be followed later by a PS5 and Xbox Series X/S release.
Give the trailer a watch below, and look out for more on the game next month.
